After experiencing unprecedented turnover in 2021, we are thrilled to share that—despite the challenges of recruiting during a national nurse staffing crisis—Lumina has welcomed five new nurses to our team in 2022. This means that we are fully staffed and able to admit patients within 24 to 48 hours of referral. As Dr. Helen Kao, our Medical Director of Clinical Innovations says, “This is great news for our community. The benefits of Lumina’s care are tremendous; not only for the patient who is dying, but family members, loved ones, and the entire community.” But we need your help sharing this good news, so that patients and families in our community can benefit from Lumina’s care.
Here is how you can help:
- Continue to refer your family and friends to Lumina when they are in need of end-of-life care. And know that patients always have a choice about which hospice agency to use, regardless of physician, insurance, or other affiliation. If you are not sure if your loved one is ready or eligible for hospice or palliative care, we can help. Call for a consult at 541-757-9616.
- If you or a family member has benefited from any of Lumina’s services, please share your experience in a Google review. This will help our search results so that other families in need can come to know Lumina. Simply click the “Leave us a Review Button” on our Testimonials page.
- Like and follow our Facebook page and share our posts so others can learn more about our services and extensive community programming.
We are incredibly thankful to you, our community, for your ongoing support. Together, we can further our mission to provide compassionate care and support to those facing serious illness or end of life.
